Shouldn't that be Elvish?

I've seen TTT enough times that I'm starting to pick up a few little bits of Elvish. I particularly like Legolas's line during Helms deep (the "we're all going to die" one). It sounds vaguely like " ... dagor nassa dagathya". I just love the sound of the line.

No, I don't speak Elvish, but if any of you geekettes want to learn, I know where you could pick up a little pocket money ...... [Razz]

I'm not a geekette, but some of my alternate personalities are. Where do I sign up? [Wink]

I'm just glad he had the courtesy to freak out in something only Aragorn could understand. Had he had his little fit in English or Rohhirc there might have been a panic.

Yes, it annoyed me somewhat when Aragorn switched the conversation into Common. Surely he should have been aware of the importance of maintaining morale, and understood how bad it would look when the 'heroes' started freaking out.

not fluently, but i'm getting close. i have the authorized grammar layout and dictionary of all of tolkien's languages...but i'm sorely disappointed in the movies' lack of roh, the language of the people of rohan. it's my favorite. [Big Grin]

It's not Elf, Elvish, or anything else. It's called Quenya

Er, actually, most of the Elvish in the movies (and books) is Sindarin. Quenya is the Latin of Middle Earth - written and almost never spoken, used by scholars and almost no one else.
